Curating The American Wars in Vietnam and Iraq


This talk will share selected areas of the newly finished manuscript, Curating and Re-Curating the American Wars in Vietnam and Iraq coming out in 2019 with Oxford University Press. The study poses the main questions of who has authoritative war knowledge, where is that knowledge displayed, how does it appear, and what political issues emerge around war displays. Professor Sylvester will consider curatorial/re-curatorial war expertise emanating from public displays of war objects in Australia, the USA, and Vietnam that relate to the two wars. All raise issues of war/cultural management and expertise.
